and eugene robinson. how far do you see how far vice president task force will go and how far the president will go? >> i doubt they will go as far as i would like. i think they should deal with a comprehensive plan, deal with background checks and deal with military-style weapons and deal with trafficking and deal with special protections the gun industry gets now and put all those trigger locks and all those things in a comprehensive bill. tough to get through. the problem with doing a single bill by single bill, everyone says that wouldn't stop that shooting or stop this shooting. if you've got a comprehensive bill, and then you've got to negotiate to keep the high capacity ammunition magazines and give up some of the military-style weapons then you've got trade-offs you can make. put everything on the table. i think biden -- vice president biden needs to do that. the president needs to do the same thing. the nra and their folks will fight everything tooth-and-nail so let's put the whole program out there, if we can. >> do you think we can get something more liberal out of a judiciary co

"politics nation" with al sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, krischris, and thank you for tuning in. we're covering this amazing, historic day in washington. the inauguration of barack obama as our president. right now, the president and the vice president are watching the inaugural parade with groups from all over the country going by and standing in front of the white house. just moments ago, the airmen passed by and got a standing ovation. earlier today, the president gave his second inaugural address, a stirring, passionate call for equality and fairness. forging a more perfect union and helping the country live up to the meaning of its creed. >> we, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths, that all of us are created equal. is the star that guides us still, just as it guided our fore bearers through seneca falls and selma and stonewall,
. joinling me now, the msnbc contributor, eugene robinson and author of barack obama, the story. let's start with you, david. and there's your book up there. this was -- i thought more of an argument, less than a melding pot than a mosaic. it was an interesting way in which he talk pd about the different groups that got him e re-elected and the way he paid tribute today. >> he came up late in the civil rights movement and always said that he regretted that. this is what he finally proclaimed with such passion today. you can look at his life and doctor king and the rise of civil rights in a very personal way. the day barack obama was born, four civil rights workers were arrested in louisiana. on august 4th, the civil rights act was passed by the senate. so there's so much history that was sort of, you could see it in his face today, i think in a more profound way than even is first inaugural. >> well, he comes from an unusual background. he comes from an imgrant mother who left the scene, white mother, middle american mother raised in hawaii and raised again in indonesia. >> so he had to con

robinson -- host: the eugene robinson piece this morning, "no longer the black president." "the verdict of his presidency will depend on what he accomplishes in his second term." host: that is the piece from eugene robinson, "no longer the black president." on the agenda for the second term, moving forward is what they write in "the washington times." up -- "upcoming challenges, tax control, the wealthy, iran, immigration, all on the table." stan, what do you think? caller: i think that people will stop and listen to what the president said. he said we the people and together. it is very simple. together we can solve our problems. that is the way it is. people are different. turning things around, making it look like something is not. that is the biggest problem with our country, everyone judging everything. simply start listening to the man. host: ron, chicago, hello. caller: i agree with the piece from the post. that really sums it up. speech, the president demonstrated his commitment to continuing down the path of pulling the nation back towards the center, politically. host: you saw
members of congress who dare to defy them. joining me now, eugene robinson from the post. euge eugene, first to you. the nra is feared on the hill. are they as effective as they claim to be? they are going to be meeting with joe biden tomorrow, which is going to be a very interesting meeting. >> going to be a very interesting meeting, andrea. nobody bats 1,000. the nra has been very successful. i have a feeling this time might be a bit different. i think they'll have to swallow some new gun control laws eventually that they don't like. >> and, chris, we're talking about gun control laws. is the most likely thing some sort of assault weapons ban or more likely going to be in the mental health arena? also curious as to what joe biden was talking about today when he said he could do some things by executive order. >> right now democrats are trying to lay out an array of options. republicans are letting them. before i came on, i talked to house and senate republican leadership aides. where are you at, what's the plan, we're waiting for the vice president. they are not interested in taking
, and i don't know that it's as trite as if you believe in magic, but eugene robinson has an op ed, and i think we are well to listen -- we would do well to listen to eugene's words, which basically amount to don't listening to those that say that president obama's bold plan to reduce gun violence, including an assault weapons ban, has no chance in congress. i seem to recall that health care reform is deemed impossible too until it happened. >> i would agree with you. there is not only a change in how people view guns and particularly n.r.a. members. i was an nra member. i am no longer a member. i just declined membership after a while. newtown didn't do it. there's a culture in the country, as many know, who believe that guns are part of recreation and sport. they take their kids, much like we do in the northeast to football and lacrosse games and soccer games. they go out and hunt in the morning during hunting season. many people view this slippery slope as a bad thing, but newtown, you're right, was an inflexion point. i think the way the president has gone about this has been fair and
african-american republican. eugene robinson is a pulitzer prize winning columnist for "the washington post" and an msnbc contributor. alex wagner is the host of "now," the celebrated program with her noontime greatness coming at us every day of the week. let's listen to general powell -- i always have to have a lighter note because this is tough stuff. here is general powell on "meet the press" yesterday. >> there's also a dark vein of intolerance in some parts of the party. what do i mean by that? what i mean by that is they still sort of look down on minorities. how can i evidence that? when i see a former governor say that the president is shucking and jiving, that's a racial era slave term. when i see another former governor after the president's first debate where he didn't do very well says that the president was lazy. he didn't say he was slow, he was tired, he didn't do well. he said he was lazy. now, it may not mean anything to most americans. but to those of us who are african-americans, the second word is shiftless and a third word that goes with it. birther, the whole birt
to talk to joan walsh. which is fun in this discussion. and eugene robinson who writes beautiful columns and you did it again on rg3. is there something wrong with this picture, joan walsh? as we look at it. >> yes. obviously there is, chris. it would be a somewhat different picture if valerie had been actually visible in it. so that's a shame. but it's not enough. she is one of the most influential if not the most influential person in the president's circle. we've got to give him credit for that. i think it's unfortunate the "times" piece did not talk about the fact he did nominate two women to the supreme court. and the court nominees have been good in terms of diversity. those two things mitigate a bit. however, you're right. that picture -- the general picture you showed before the segment of the top level appointees, john brennan we didn't mention, all being men. it is a change. it is a little disturbing. and the departure of somebody as luminous as hillary clinton, too, makes it feel more stark and more like, you know, really something that should be corrected. and i don't -- i th
conservative, rural, and southern and appears to only care about their own? eugene robinson is a columnist nor "the washington post" and an msnbc political analyst. susan milligan is contributing editor to q "u.s. news & world report." i have a quicken and egg question for you. what drives the divide within the republican party, geography or ideology? >> good question. i think it's the chicken and egg answer, which is i don't know. one drives the other drives the other drives the other. initially the republican party became a southern party through the southern strategy pioneered by lee atwater years and years ago. that became kind of self-perpetuating and, of course, state legislatures started turning, republican seats got gerrymandered into safe republican seats. so there are a lot of factors there, but basically we're at a point now where the red states get redder and the blue states get bluer. >> susan, a lot of self-sorting at both ends of the spectrum i think is eugene's point. what accounts for that? >> well, first of all, i think people are self-selecting their communities. year not on
tucker and "the washington post's" eugene robinson. i want to start with gene up here. it seems to me they have this new sort of gee, whiz, we're getting beat up, but they were the party that for four years shut the door on a new president. he won the election -- >> and said, you know, our number one goal is to make him a one-term president and they said, no, no, no. they said no to measures they had proposed in the past, but as long as he proposed them, they said no. to turn around and then say, oh, he's hitting us, he's beating us up, it's kind of silly, and i don't know -- are they just trying to rally the troops -- >> wasn't this the macho party a couple weeks ago in they're now becoming the -- >> used to be. now they're victims. >> cynthia, what is the psychology to tell people who have been predatory towards the president that they're somehow now being bullied? what is in the psycho ward that tells them they will unite if we're all victims getting beat up? mitch mcconnell -- >> chris, psychiatry has a term for this. it's called projection. projection is what the patient does whe
